PMCH's dept keen to be different

PATNA: A department in the Patna Medical College Hospital (PMCH) which chooses to stand out is the physiology department by implementing new schemes and learning methodology. The students during their course undergo computer training after which they are assessed by computer simulated problems.

The department has a physiology museum which is one of its kind in India. "The models put up for display in the museum have been made by students of the department under the guidance of their teachers," said head of physiology department, Dr Rajiv Ranjan Prasad.

The department runs four degree courses including MBBS, Bachelor of Dental Surgery, Bachelor of Physiotherapy and Bachelor of Occupational Therapy.
